The Texas Tech Greek community is just one day away from finishing a home for a needy Lubbock family. More than 500 students in 42 fraternities and sororities have been working around the clock this weekend to start and finish building a home for a Lubbock man and his son. This is a project the Greek community has been coordinating for years now, and they finally got the money and manpower necessary to build the house.
"Having this house on Greek Circle and the community watching us, it's showing everyone that we are here, we do want to help, and we do want to give back to Lubbock which has given so much to us," says Tech senior Lauren Heine.
The Texas Tech Greek community will have a dedication ceremony at Greek Circle and hand over the keys to the house Monday night at 6:30.
